Abstract : This patent describes an instrument for measuring the energy fluence of a pulsed X-ray field independent of the energy of the photons constituting the field. Separate X-radiation absorption assemblied made of particular materials include separate X-radiation detector means therein and are positioned relative to each other to provide output signal proportional to the energy fluence of the incident radiation. This device will operate over an energy fluence rate range from 10 thousand to 100 million ergs/sq cm delivered in less than one second. (Author)
